Are you someone who loves nature- just going out and walking and exploring and soaking in its beauty? Do you find yourself enjoying watching birds, finding different species, watching their movement and habits? We do also! And Wisconsin is the perfect place just for that. There are a few that we get excited about when we catch a glimpse and hear their wonderful sounds – the Pileated Woodpecker, Red-bellied woodpecker and a variety of owls, each often discovered in the Kettle Moraine area and more specifically here at our bed and breakfast.
What a fantastic day trip idea as you stay at Hidden Serenity Bed and Breakfast! Take a day, pack a lunch and set out to find thsee birds and others as you explore the area trails, something all of our guests thoroughly enjoy.
This winter there has been almost daily sightings of the gorgeous Red-bellied Woodpecker right out our large back windows, as well as Downy Woodpeckers, Hairy Woodpeckers, Nut-hatches, Black-capped Chickadees, Red Tailed Hawks, and Barred Owls. You will have a fantastic chance of also hearing the owls communicating with one another.
Don’t worry! These wonderful creatures will still be around in the up-coming seasons! Spring is a perfect time to go searching for many varieties of birds. Early spring is a fantastic time to go looking for the Red-bellied Woodpecker as this is their mating time where the male will begin claiming his territory in search of a mate. The male, as many other woodpeckers do, uses drumming as a primary source in attracting a mate, done on hollow limbs, utility poles or other material that will get his point across.
Book your stay with us today and experience bird watching in Wisconsin. We are only a couple of hours north of Chicago, a perfect drive for a weekend getaway from the hustle of the city! We look forward to serving you and loved one soon!
Fun Wisconsin Fact: Most everyone knows that Wisconsin is famous for our milk and cheese but did you also know that other farm products that can be found here are peas, beans, corn, potatoes, oats, hay and cranberries? Something to think about when Thanksgiving comes along this year!
